Food: Cherry Season with Northwest Cherries (Jasons Food Hall, Bangsar Shopping Centre)

Food: Cherry Season with Northwest Cherries (Jasons Food Hall, Bangsar Shopping Centre)
If you're an active social media user, you would have seen a couple of dozen pictures of Durians from the postings of your friends. Why the sudden craze? Because it's Durian Season and without fail like clock works, everyone will remind us.

But did you know that currently is also the cherry season? From June to August is the cherry season in the United States. And now we Malaysians get a chance to enjoy this divinely plump, juicy and deliciously syrupy-sweet flesh cherries because Northwest Cherries from the United States made it's debut at Jasons Food Hall, Bangsar Shopping Centre recently. BTW Northwest Cherries make up 75% of cherry sales in Malaysia, it's like the Sunskist of Oranges. 

In case you're wondering, Northwest Cherries are grown by over 2,500 growers spread across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Montana orchards and make up over 70% of overall cherry producers in the United States. The environment in these states is ideal for growing cherries. These states are situated between the Rocky Mountain and the Cascades, with nutrient rich, volcano soil and are watered by clean melted mountain snow with warm, sun-drenched days and cool, crisp nights.

I even got a chance to try them. The size and the freshness of the cherry really shocked me. It was huge, juicey, sweet and firm. Since it's from USA, I kinda had my doubts on how fresh it would be and to my surprise, even after eating them after a week, it was still pretty fresh. Reason could be because Northwest Cherries typically picked, packed and shipped to consumers within 24 hours. Talk about efficient cherry provider.

Plus chowing down on cherries didn't make me feel guilty or worry at all. It's packed with vitamins and minerals. Also loaded with antioxidants and potassium, which aids inflammatory diseases such as gout and arthritis, prevents cancer and aids heart health. Its low calorie and low in glycemic index attributes make them an ideal fruit for people who are suffering from diabetes and for weight watchers. I had a bag of cherries btw (I think I could have finished 1kg of cherries all to myself). I did also noticed that my skin got clearer while I was eating them. If only I had more cherries while I was younger.

Growing up was never easy. It was even harder when I had to deal with my acne. People in school used to stare at my pimples or say why don't I take care of my skin when actually I did try my best. It was after college that I realise what type of skin I had and also which brands were right for me. If any of you are having some acne problems, don't be shy about it to ask for help. It took me 5 years to actually fix mine. No matter how lazy you are, always cleanse, tone and moisturise. Your skin will thank you for it. More details in this link: http://www.glamasia.com/2015/07/01/two-tips-solid-skincare-regimen/. Just thought of sharing as lately people noticed my skin clearing up as compare to before.

Anyways, Northwest Cherries would be available at major night markets and morning markets across Peninsula Malaysia and selected supermarkets in East Malaysia. It would retail between RM40 to RM 80 per kilogram depending on the progression of the season. Did you know that cherries can be kept frozen for up to 6 months with three simple steps, just simply rinse them, freezer bag them and pop them into the freezer. Of course eating it fresh is still ideal to me.

Hope this helps all cherry fans out there.
Stay hydrated and healthy this hot season.

Product: Toshiba Torneo Vacuum Cleaner (2.8kg)
Does it seem like a torture when you think of cleaning your house? Especially with an enormous vacuum cleaner to carry around? One thing for sure, cleaning is hard but cleaning the household appliances after using it is worse. When ever my vacuum cleaner bag is full, I usually leave it to another family member to deal with it as I'm sensitive to dust. Sounds like a princess right? heh.

Not sure if you guys remember my previous post of Toshiba (here), but last year they launched their new Torneo Vacuum Cleaner with Cyclone Technology. They got lots of raving reviews for their Futon Brush which can actually help to remove dust mites on the bed! Guess who got the privilege of trying the product itself? :D 

I even did an unboxing video. Enjoy~!
PS. Watch the video before moving on.

I pretty much covered everything on the video. But if I were have to summarize this vacuum cleaner, here is 10 reasons why you should change your old vacuum cleaner to this.

1. Remove Dust Mites and Reduce Allergens
With Futon Brush, it can remove dust mites and skin flakes on your carpets, bedding and furniture. The sticks will hit 16 times per one rotation of wheel so the dead skin and dust mites will be removed during the cleaning process.

2. Lightweight
The body weight is only 2.8 KG makes it easy to lift and comfortable to carry. With the new design of vacuum cleaner, hidden wheels are designed to improve mobility and the dust on wheels will not be easily attached to the clothes.

3. Able to clean hard reach areas
It comes with 4 brush heads that helps to clean different areas in the house.
Futton Brush: Bed and Sofa
Round Brush: Photo Frame, Leather Furniture, Filter or Ceiling Fan
Revolving Brush: Flooring
Crevice Nozzle: Narrow Edges

4. Easy to Clean
Instead of using the traditional accumulated dust type vacuum cleaner that does not provide strong suction power and is difficult to clean the dust bag, this vacuum cleaner stores the dust in the cup. Just remove the cap, dispose dust and wash it if you want. Sounds simple right?

5. Safe for kids & pets
Revolving Brush will automatically stop spinning when it’s being lifted off the floor

6. High Efficiency Pleat Filter
This filter is able to capture particles down to 0.5 microns (99.9%)

7. Dual Tornado System
Cyclone vacuum cleaners are trending now. What is it? With cyclone technology the suction power is sustainable up to 2 hours. There are Tornado High Speed spiral power to separate dust and air; Tornado Low Speed spiral power will compress the dust for more space and easy dust disposal. 

8. Easy Touch Handle Control
This ought to be the most convenient innovation with 3 levels of easy power control found at the hand switch. So long back pain. No longer needing to bend down to tap on the vacuum cleaner itself to on/off the machine

9. Electric Saving  
There are other cyclone type vacuum cleaners in the market with input power between 1600W ~ 2400W and Toshiba with 1100W input power. FYI the higher input power may face higher electric bills.

10. User Friendly
It didn't take me long to figure out how to use it and Toshiba provided plenty of visuals guide on the product, box and manual. Also it wasn't loud and I could do my cleaning at night without disturbing anyone.

Toshiba Torneo Vacuum Cleaner (2.8KG)
RM 889 (Including GST)

Hope this helps those who been eyeing on this.
Have a great day ahead! :)
